Features DXS Wireless Technology
When smoke is detected, the DXS-73 Supervised Photoelectric Smoke Detector Transmitter sounds a loud local alarm. Twenty seconds after the local alarm sounds, the built-in DXS transmitter sends a digitally coded signal to a security receiver or security control panel, alerting you of a possible fire. The wireless signal is repeated every 20 seconds as long as smoke is still present.
The photoelectric smoke alarm includes a built-in transmitter designed for use with Linear’s DXS and DX format receivers. The DXS can send three different signals: alarm, low battery and status. The DX code format features more than one million possible codes. Each transmitter is precoded at the factory to a unique code so no field coding is required.
The unit is powered by a 3-volt lithium battery. The battery is supplied with the transmitter and can power the unit for up to five years. During normal operation, the green status indicator blinks every 10 seconds. If the battery voltage drops below a preset level the alarm will sound low battery beeps, the red indicator will blink every 45 seconds, and a low battery signal will be sent to the receiver with status reports.
